Roads and parking spurs within the site are gravel. Firewood is available for purchase from the host.

Small & Clean

Host is amazing! Campgrounds are good sizes and accommodates Travel trailers and fifth wheels. Does have group camping. No water hookup, no electricity and no showers. There is noises from the vehicles on the road nearby. It is close to the roads. Pet friendly.

great location... buggy in late July

We stayed here for its proximity to Jackson, Grand Tetons NP and Yellowstone NP without having to deal with camping inside the NPs and still stay fairly close to our next stop in W Montana. The park is one small loop. The sites are spacious and clean. The pit toilets are clean. No showers. AT&T service was non-existent for data... phone coverage was just ok. The camp host is very friendly. He was able to point us to an RV dump station at the Palisades Dam campground where we were able to dump after we left. The only negative about the park was the bugs. Not just mosquitos, but also other annoying bugs. The only wildlife in or around the park were squirrels and birds.
